For Our 2017 Event:
We set up meetings for you with your legislators. Or, if you are new to the event and want to partner with others who have done this before, we’ll pair you up with engineers and land surveyors and you’ll join them for their legislative appointments.
Lobbying in Massachusetts:
Recent changes in the lobbying laws over the past few years have the effect of sweeping some activities into the category of "lobbying" which previously may not have been considered lobbying. As long as you are participating in Design Professionals Day as a representative of at least one of our associations, discussing the issues set for the day, you do not have to register as a lobbyist.

An important part of our Advocacy efforts is Engineers and Land Surveyors Day; the one day each year when we as a profession gather in force at the State House and present our industry's viewpoints in person to our local legislators. It is a chance for each of us to meet with your State Representative and State Senator to discuss issues pertinent to our industry, to you as an individual professional, and to you as a citizen. We coordinate this event annually to promote communications with our state legislators, arranging appointments, providing briefing sheets on key issues for ACEC/MA, BSCES and MALSCE members to utilize, and establishing teams of local residents to meet with their actual legislators.
